Title DEVELOPMENT OF A FULL PROJECT PROPOSAL TO GENERATE TOOLS TO ENSURE THE ESTABLISHMENT OF TIMBER FOREST SPECIES THROUGH NATURAL REGENERATION IN THE PROVINCE OF TAHUAMANU, PERU
Status PENDING FINANCE
Executing agency
NATIONAL AGRARIAN UNIVERSITY OF LA MOLINA
Summary Since 2002, UNALM has been pursuing a long-term strategy proposal to provide tools and outcomes to remove CITES-listed species from the CITES Appendices (mahogany and cedar).

Furthermore, given the current forest harvesting standards and modalities, it is essential to continue research so as to strengthen the preliminary results of projects implemented by UNALM and include new species in the studies to assess the status of their populations and phenology with a view to providing valid technical tools and scientific lessons to establish the basis for sustainable forest management in forest concessions and native community forests.

This pre-project seeks to validate a methodology to assess and monitor the regeneration and phenology of commercial species so as to develop a full project proposal aimed at the ongoing monitoring of 4 significant forest species in the 3 major timber regions of the country. The overall objective at the national level is to ensure that the tools developed will be useful to users in their search for sustainable forest management and to authorities in their development of monitoring, verification and supervision protocols, with the ultimate long-term goal of restoring the populations of not only mahogany and cedar, so that they can be removed from CITES appendices, but also of other internationally traded species.
